About the Theology of Work BIble Commentary

Although a commentary is typically a tool for pastors and scholars, the TOW Bible Commentary is also widely used by ordinary working Christians. Millions have found that its applications and examples help them understand and put into practice what God intends for their work.  Pastors use it to help include work in their regular weekly sermons. Seminary and university faculty and students use it help integrate Christian faith with matters of work and economics.

The other materials on the Theology of Work website --topical articles, small group studies, devotions, sermons, church models and examples, case studies, personal reflections, curricular modules, and many others--are grounded on the biblical foundation provided by TOW Commentary.  The TOW Bible Commentary is also available in print and Logos Bible Software format.

The Theology of Work Bible Commentary incorporates materials from over 120 contributors representing the breadth of the historic/orthodox Christian faith, vetted by an Editorial Board of biblical scholars, pastors and workplace experts meeting in person discuss, amend, and improve each passage in the commentary. Over seven years in the making, and continually updated online, this multi-faceted commentary reflects the true nature of work as described in the Bible.
